The bloodiest day in Iraq for weeks


A suicide bomber caused carnage at a Shi'ite funeral and gunmen ambushed a vital fuel convoy outside Baghdad amid a wave of attacks that killed more than 50 people on Wednesday, the bloodiest day in Iraq for weeks.

Meanwhile, switching from using boots on the ground to air power in an attempt to reduce US casualties has not gone to plan after an airstrike on house in the northern industrial city of Bayji yesterday. The attack enraged Iraqi Officials when warplanes killed nine members of an Iraqi family, including women and young children, during a bombing strike

More news from today in Iraq include the usual kidnap , murder and carnage we have come to expect .

So now the only thing missing is the standard White House speech to tell us all how well things are going , oh here it is .

Note this article was compiled by _H_ in the UK . It represents the view of a non American on the effects of American foreign policy and should be read as such.
